Organic Bistro: Whole Life Meals - Review with Giveaway

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Since the beginning of 2010. I have been actively pursuing better health. I am learning the importance of nutrition. I look for whole grain foods, enjoy more vegetables, and watch for healthy fats. Organic Bistro - Whole Life Meals fits all those good choices while tasting great.

Organic Bistro believes wellness is a journey, not a place. When we eat better, we feel better. Organic Bistro uses wholesome organic ingredients, fiber rich grains, and plenty of vegetables. Their meals are low-glycemic plus gluten-free. The science of nutrition is based on best food choices.

Organic Bistro uses:
Best Sources of Carbohydrates: vegetables, whole grains, fruits, beans, legumes/beans
Best Sources of heart-healthy Fats: fish, nuts, olive oil, plant oils
Best Sources of Protein: legumes/beans, fish, soyfoods and lean poultry, grass-fed beef

With all that goodness, how do the meals taste? Courtesy of Organic Bistro, I was able to sample a few of the meals. I visited my local health food market where I easily found the meals in the freezer section. My choices are Ginger Chicken, Wild Salmon, and Jamaican Shrimp Cake. Each one was delicious, with a lively blend of flavor. Starting with the Ginger Chicken with Green Tea Veggies & Almond Pilaf. Sounds great, tastes really good. The ginger chicken has a little kick to the sauce which I loved. It was not too spicy. The ginger flavor was very enjoyable. The veggies were sugar snap peas, another favorite of mine. The Almond Pilaf made this meal for me. I loved the addition of edamame in the pilaf. Good stuff! The Wild Salmon in a Rosemary Orange Glaze with Cranberry Pilaf & Broccoli. I did like the orange flavor sauce on the salmon but the rest of the meal seemed to need a little more seasoning. I wanted it to be more cranberry. Broccoli always need something for me. I guess I am not that fond of broccoli. My absolute favorite of the 3 meals I sampled was the Jamaican Shrimp Cake: Jerk Spiced Shrimp Cake with Red Pepper - Green Bean Salad with Mango-Black Bean Rice. The description alone made my mouth water. The flavor was incredible. The jerk seasoning made the shrimp cake so delicious. The mango black bean rice was very tropical and oh so tasty. The green bean salad balanced the spice of the dish very nicely. I would purchase this meal again!


Organic Bistro offers 8 varieties of meals. Try one of the recipes to accompany your Organic Bistro Meals. You can find Organic Bistro Meals at many health food markets.
